Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Chevrolet Silverado 3500

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

My low fuel light is on. I have replaced the fuel pump in the front tank. I have a full tank in the rear tank and 1/2 full in the front tank. When I first start the cold engine the Gage goes up then down to E and the light comes on. I know It's not the fuel pump. Any idea whats wrong. AL
